This was an appointment to establish Dr. Bautista as my new pcp. She was very patient and accommodating, and took the time to go over my medical history with me so she could familiarize herself with my case, as well as answer any questions I had. A very good first appointment, I am definitely looking forward to working with her again in the future.

This is the only poor review I have left of anything in my entire life. I tried to continue going back to her to see if it would be any different, but it has been the same every time. She has always been halfway out the door during my appointment. She doesn't ask if I have questions, so I have to stop her from going out the door to ask questions I may have. She doesn't explain answers to the questions very well and when she's done explaining she is out the door again even if I might have another question. I also want to discuss the poor service of the nurse. She is always in a bad mood when I come in and seems very annoyed to answer any questions I might have, event if it is just where the lab is located.

The doctor will not listen to my concerns and even though I told her I could not make it to Portland to see a specialist, she referred me to offices in Portland and made no attempt to help me find somebody I could get to. [...]
